Application examples:

  • Regional refining throughputs/utilizations, capacity additions/investments (longer term horizons)
  • Inter-regional crude/non-crudes/products trade flows
  • Crude and product “supply costs” (prices) by region
  • Hence refining crack spreads/margins
  • Refinery CO₂ emissions

WORLD Model®

The global model:

  • Delivers an integrated model (LP) of the global total “liquids” refining and supply system.
  • Uses “top-down” outlooks from EIA, IEA, etc. versus projecting world oil price/supply/demand.
  • Matches/tunes “bottom-up” detail to “top-down” outlook.
  • Simulates how the global refining/trade system is likely to operate under the given outlook.
  • Efficiently and rapidly addresses multiple time horizons and scenarios.
